On Tuesday, Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) became the third governor in U.S. history to face a recall vote. The effort to remove him started last year after Walker pushed through a plan to strip public workers of nearly all their collective bargaining rights. Walker says he did so to reign in the state budget.

The recall election has national implications. Politico's James Hohmann told Capital Insider it's the second most important race of the year behind the presidential election.
